Till Saturday, my sweets…..

We hope everyone has a very beautiful and delicious Thanksgiving. Also the gift of family, friends and lots love. Be thankful for what blessings you have in your life and never take them for granted.

We won’t be on the internet tomorrow. We are driving up to Eastern Kentucky for our family get together. The boys didn’t really like the turkey I made out of bologna. I thought it looked half way decent, it had some good legs on it, hot dogs. Now who else could think of that? Nobody in the right mind anyway. But we are leaving this afternoon and we are spending the night up there. We will be back either late Friday evening or Saturday morning. You know if there is no postings on here for Saturday, we might have been snowed in or flooded out. Goddess, I hope not. I love them to pieces but I believe anyone can only take so much of their relatives, then it is time to run.

I just wanted to let you know that we are headed for the hills and will be back Saturday. For those of you, like us, traveling this weekend, please be careful. Be sure to eat lots of turkey and dressing and don’t forget that all important nap after dinner.

We are off for now…..

Wishing You A Bountiful & Blessed Thanksgiving,

Love ya,

Lady of the Abyss

Full Moon 23 November 2018 – Temper Temper!

Full Moon 23 November 2018 – Temper Temper!

The full moon on Friday November 23, 2018 at 0° Gemini in the Pleiades Star Cluster. The Full Moon November 2018 astrology is also influenced by the planetary aspect Mars square Jupiter. This can make you feel strong, brave and sexy but also angry and frustrated. The danger is that impulsive and reckless actions could lead to accidents or injuries.

The November 2018 full moon in the Pleiades increases the risk of losing your temper and becoming cruel and ruthless. The keys to avoiding pain, loss and sorrow are patience and forethought. While irritation and frustration may prove difficult to avoid, you can release the hot full moon energy safely using self-control and moderation.

Full Moon Meaning

A full moon occurs when the Sun is opposite the Moon. This highlights opposing forces or polarities in your life such as your work versus home, or what you need versus what you want. Inner tension and external pressures can lead to personal conflict and crises that drain your energy. Your home, family and intimate relationships comes into sharper focus following a full moon.

The lunar qualities of emotions and instincts reach their peak at a full moon. Use you increased emotional strength and intuition to overcome any relationship challenges. Subconscious awareness allows for an impartial and balanced look at your personal relationships. You will clearly see any relationship dynamics or negative feelings causing disharmony.`

A full moon has a relationship to the previous new moon. Your November 7 new moon goals can now be fine-tuned or completed, it is harvest time. You can make emotional adjustments in response to those new goals. Full moon November 2018 lasts for two weeks up to the December 7 new moon.

Full Moon November 2018 Astrology

The November 23 full moon has a nasty feel to it because of the planetary aspects and fixed stars. The full moon square Mars brings bitterness and anger for the next two weeks. An opposition to Jupiter amplifies this confrontational energy.

The Moon at 00°52′ Gemini Sign is on the same degree as Alcyone, the central star of the Pleiades Star Cluster. The Pleiades bring love and peace when well placed. However, square Mars and opposite the Sun and Jupiter is far from being well placed.

Full Moon Aspects

Full Moon square Mars brings simmering anger to the surface so take care to avoid being hurt or causing harm. There is danger when taking risks or acting impulsively. However, holding in anger and frustration is not healthy either. Repressed anger can manifest physically as pain in your body, accidents, aggressive reactions in others, or as conflict in your home. There will probably be some degree of emotional discomfort in close relationships, especially with women.

They key to handling this quick and hot energy is to release your frustrations in a controlled way. If you have annoyed someone else, don’t be overly defensive or mean when they share their feelings with you. Cuts or burns, especially in the kitchen, would suggest you have not dealt with your emotional troubles. Face what is making you feel threatened with courage. Emotional attacks from others are just as likely as you losing your temper with a loved one.

Moon opposite Jupiter is likely to cause lack self-control and unwanted attention. It can make you less guarded about your feelings and private life, which can leave you vulnerable to interfering mothers, moral crusaders and even the public. This full moon will be more problematic if you already have difficulty with self-control or addiction. You may react to others people’s possessive or jealous behaviour by subconsciously falling into negative habits and behaviors.

Mars square Jupiter can make you feel energetic and sexy but can also make you impulsive and tactless. It gives the courage to take on adversaries if you feel threatened but a defensive approach is best. This is not a good full moon for going on the attack, especially without provocation. Without forethought and strategy, rash actions could lead to embarrassment, accidents or injuries. Finally, moderate your energy output to avoid physical or emotional exhaustion.

Full Moon in The Pleiades

The artwork below from the Lascaux caves in France is 17,000 year old. It shows the Pleiades star cluster accurately represented in its relative position in the sky over the bull’s shoulder.

Fixed star Alcyone at 00 ♊ 15 is the main star of the Pleiades in Taurus Constellation. It has a strongly feminine influence and its rising has always been linked to homosexuality in men:

They adopt feminine dress, footwear donned not for wear but for show, and an affected effeminate gait. They are ashamed of their sex; in their hearts dwells a senseless passion for display, and they boast of their malady, which they call a virtue. To give their love is never enough, they will also want their love to be seen. [1]

If well-connected, the Pleiades bring love and eminence, making people ambitious, optimistic and peaceful. They give many journeys and voyages, success in agriculture and through active intelligence. [2] They are especially indicative of events that affect the family and family life. [3]  The Pleiades can raise people to high position with preferment, honor and glory. [4] Even if ‘afflicted’, they make for an excellent counselor to others in the time of bereavement. [5]

However, the full moon conjunct Alcyone is not well-connected. Ptolemy assigned the planetary nature of the Moon and Mars to Alcyone, just like the tempestuous aspect it activates. The Pleiades can cause injuries to the eyes and face and even blindness, especially when in harsh aspect to Mars. [4] Alcyone brings deep sorrows, tragedies and bereavement. [5] It can make people cruel, ruthless and promiscuous. Hostility from other, fall from power, disgrace and violence are also possible.

Celebrities with Alcyone in their natal chart include Adele (Mercury), Rudy Giuliani and Nigel Farage (Venus), Elon Musk (Saturn), Woody Allen (MC), Justin Bieber (DC) and Angelina Jolie (PoF and South Node).

Today’s Tip: Why the November 2018 Full Moon Is One of the Best of the Year

Why the November 2018 Full Moon Is One of the Best of the Year

This month’s full Beaver Moon in Gemini occurs on November 22, 2018 at 9:39 p.m. PT and is one of the best of the year, heralding a time of optimism, expansion, luck and adventure.

As to where the past few days, weeks, and even months may have been transformative, challenging and dark, this month’s full moon in Gemini will bring the light and laughter back to your life. It will open you up to a slew of new (and better!) opportunities you never dreamed were possible.

A lot of the opportunities that may come to you at this full moon will be related to the events that occurred in your life around January 2015, when Saturn first entered the sign of Sagittarius. Those events could have brought some major restriction and focus to your life, making it difficult to sustain and build on your passions. The full moon in Gemini will trigger that time and the events that have occurred since then, transforming them into something that you can feel more optimistic about.

Expect the unexpected in relationships and money as a result, which should help to propel you forward into a life that is more liberating and authentic.

You may feel passionate, jovial and excitable at this full moon with happy Jupiter in a square to Mars, the planet of action but try to temper your emotion and measure your actions.

Knowing the details and putting all the pieces together from the past few years may still be difficult. Mercury in retrograde in Sagittarius, a sign it does not like, while it is in a square with Neptune, could bring confusion about some new journey you are embarking on or some feelings of hesitation.

Allow yourself to enjoy the moment, adjust your perspective and accept that better times are now ahead without pushing issues that aren’t meant to happen quite yet.

You are only just now at the very beginning of a grand adventure. You have many more months (and even years) to get moving on this journey, build on top of it, and ultimately bring it to completion. And a lot still needs to happen before then.

ARIES

Travel may have been difficult lately. Asserting and being respected for your beliefs may also have been hard. That lack of passion could have put a strain on you and made conversations with people in your community challenging. That is now a thing of the past. Use this full moon to explore until your heart is content, and stand up for yourself, even if it feels new or different.

TAURUS

Money may have been tight lately as you have been paying off some big debts. There could have also been some big changes — even births or deaths — concerning people close to you, bringing instability to your life. That changes at this new moon. Get ready for some unexpected financial windfalls and to settle into a life and relationships you feel way more connected to. Open you mind now to new possibilities.

GEMINI

Relationships could have been difficult, restricting or non-existent lately, making it hard for you to shine and feel comfortable in your own skin. This full moon in your sign will help fix some lingering issues with partners, bring some new ones into your life and restore your faith in others. Just try to be patient if the way forward with people isn’t entirely clear yet. You will get the answers you need soon.

CANCER

Your job or daily routines may have been rough, demanding or unsatisfactory the past few years, causing quite the drain on your emotions. It is time for you to kick the old ball and chain and a slew of old habits, for a new job or set of routines that suits you much better. Try to embrace it without pressuring yourself or worrying too much.

LEO

Romance and passion may have been frustrating or slow lately. Matters with kids as well could have been strained or distant, making it difficult for you to associate with friends and see your future more clearly. Luckily, that is about to end. More joy is coming back into your life. It may just require you to make some changes or end or begin something in order to get it. A big financial investment may also be required.

VIRGO

Your home may have been in disarray the past few years or relationships with family members may have been tense, creating conflict with your career or life direction. You yourself may have even felt emotionally restricted. It is time to bring the warmth, the emotion and the sense of belonging back to your life. Accept the help of one or two key people and don’t pressure them too much to do things your way.

LIBRA

Communication may have been confusing recently. Perhaps you felt as though no one else understood you or you couldn’t get your point across. Neighbors and siblings, too, could have been providing roadblocks, preventing you from getting excited about life. Use this full moon to fully speak and own your truth. Others need to know what is on your mind if you want to work with them in the future.

SCORPIO

What are you really worth? The past few years, others may have sold you short — and you yourself may not have even fully understood your own value, bringing turmoil to your life. Now, it is time to own your inherent gifts, skills and talents. More money and confidence is making its way to you. Just manage it wisely and don’t take too many unnecessary risks.

SAGITTARIUS

Who are you really, and what is important to you? The past few years, it could have been difficult for you to answer those questions, making it hard for you to commit to a steady relationship. But now, hopefully, the insights will come much more easily. Assert your newfound truth and commit to your heart’s desires. If things currently feel up in the air with you, it will all hit home soon once you take the first step.

CAPRICORN

You may have been living in the past lately or dealing with old situations that just won’t seem to go away, putting a strain on your job or daily life. Inner fears and reservations about your future may have also been worrying you. Learn to release those worries and rid yourself of any old habits and situations that no longer serve you. Communicating with others about your feelings can help.

AQUARIUS

Finding a social group you fit in with or envisioning a future that excites you, may have been difficult lately, making it hard for you to be happy and lead your life in the right direction. That changes now. It is time to find your tribe and throw yourself into some passion projects. Use all your talents to win people over and don’t forget to put your money where your mouth is.

PISCES

You may have been asked to take on a lot of responsibility in your life or career lately, and progress may have been slow or pain-staking, putting a strain on you emotionally or at home. Well, now, all that hard work is paying off. Your reputation and your profile is on the rise. Open yourself up to this new, more public chapter of your life. People are looking to you for answers.

Your White Magick Tarot Card Reading for November 22

Your White Magick Tarot Card Reading for Today

 

Cause

The Sun coming up in this position means that you’re a beacon of hope for some important people right now. The challenge comes in when you feel burdened by having to carry others’ emotions. Taking on too much only drains you, and rarely makes anyone else feel better. This card is calling you to claim your bright, magical birthright. Setting stronger boundaries isn’t mean. It’s important for keeping you sane and happy. A little healthy separation is best now.

 

 

Remedy

Life may have dealt you a rough hand lately, but you’re trying to make the best of it. If you’re still searching for the fortitude you need, look to the energy of the Strength card. In this position, it urges you to participate in an empowering ritual to find your own inner courage. Burn a bright orange candle for eight nights in a row. Each time you touch the flame to the wick, use this chant, “With this fire, I ignite the flame of strength in me.”

Your Tarot Power Card for Nov. 22 is The Pope

The Pope

You may feel like a rebel without a clue, ready to speak up against those who are in power who are wielding it inappropriately. But beware, as you buck authority during this time you might also be susceptible to bad advice that can turn your gentle eccentricity into abnormally unethical actions. If you must reject tradition, do so through creative outlets such as music, art, fashion, or the causes that you choose to support in your personal time.

Daily Tarot Love Card for Nov. 22 is The Empress

The Empress

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The word to beware of today is “obsession.” There is an addictive element in every relationship, but devotion explodes into fixation when it is uncontrolled. The action now is to slow things down if someone completely occupies a mind or minds. You are not in a soft and fruitful love if The Empress has struck a familiar cord. Positive devotion adds strength and delight, as long as it is healthy and mature.

Astrological Correspondence: Aquarius

The Star, being one of the very positive cards of the Tarot, reminds us of hope and inspiration. The Star is the symbol for our faith in the future, for feeling guided on our path by its calm and serene light. We can feel confident to not lose our direction, and as we regain motivation and inner strength, we experience peace of mind. The Star protects the future and gathers the forces necessary to expand our knowledge and develop emotionally and spiritually. The sense of protection, promise, inspiration, and joy encourages us to develop our talents to achieve our ideals. Even in an unfavorable situation, the negative elements merely throw obstacles in our way like pessimism, a lack of realism, or the inability to accept a helping hand, thus leading to possible failure.

ASTRO-TURKEY, THANKSGIVING ZODIAC, WHAT’S YOUR GAME PLAN THIS YEAR?

ASTRO-TURKEY, THANKSGIVING ZODIAC, WHAT’S YOUR GAME PLAN THIS YEAR?


 

Astro Turkey!
How each star sign goes about the job of getting the turkey ready for Thanksgiving is, different, fun and interesting!

Aries
There’s no time to waste for an Aries, they want to get the show on the road and get things organized. Before you know it, they are off to get the Turkey. Stand by, because everyone will have a job to do, it will be a delegated affair. November 22, 2018: Don’t be too serious, it’s a day of togetherness and to reconnect.

Taurus
If there’s a Taurus in the house, don’t even think about entering the kitchen without permission. They’re in control and you can expect nothing short of a gourmet delight, with stuffing and all the other goodies. November 22, 2018: Trust your instincts today, Taurus, and take a step back to watch the interaction between family.

Gemini
The twins like to be prepared, so don’t be surprised when they come home with two turkeys. You just never know when someone will drop by, so the more turkey you have on hand the better. After all, then you’ll have turkey for the whole week! November 22, 2018: And an unexpected friend could actually drop by this year. So, expected the unexpected.

Cancer
Does everyone have enough, there’s more turkey? Cancer sun sign people are great homemakers. They never forget anything, as well as making sure you have a second helping! If you are going to a Cancerian household you better not eat for a week, at least! November 22, 2018: Don’t apologize for spending extra time on how your home looks, it’s all part of the festivities.

Leo
In the Leo household, everything is big and grand. You’ll have the biggest, latest and greatest award-winning turkey Mr. or Mrs. Leo can find, even if it is imported. There are lashings of gravy and everything else that adorns a Thanksgiving table. November 22, 2018: Allow yourself to feel sentimental today, even if it does make you feel vulnerable.

Virgo
Virgo is in charge of quality control. Never mind what it looks like, or the size, or where it came from, let’s get to the most important matter of a turkey – is it juicy and flavorsome? When Virgo is in charge, don’t mess with them. Stand back and let them take over. November 22, 2018: Leave the past in the past. The power and pleasure are in enjoying the moment.

Libra
The turkey has to look beautiful for a Libran to find it appetizing and more-ish. Yes, it might be the best turkey ever and cooked to perfection, but if it’s not displayed as a piece of art on the table it can lose its appeal and quickly. Don’t forget to buy the garnish! November 22, 2018: If it makes you feel better to be a little extravagant on the trimmings if you can, then do it.

Scorpio
A Scorpio may not have been involved in the buying or cooking of the turkey, but you can be sure that they will be on call to do the official taste test. There’s no doubt that a Scorpio knows best, so don’t cross them when a turkey is involved. November 22, 2018: You are a great organizer. Be prepared to step in to make sure the day goes to plan, but be careful not to step on anyone’s toes.

Sagittarius
Whatever process the turkey goes through before it gets to the table, shopping cart, basted, baked, tasted and sliced, before any morsel of turkey touches anyone’s mouth, it will need to be blessed – Sagittarians are in charge of imparting the prayers! November 22, 2018:

Capricorn
When it comes to turkey for Thanksgiving Day, money is not an issue. Whatever it costs, a Capricorn will part with their hard-earned dollars. Capricorns are family oriented people and money is no object when it comes to a special day like this. November 22, 2018: You want everything to be right, but today, it is best to let go of your perfectionist attitude to allow others to help out.

Aquarius
Being a humanitarian, the Aquarian may be more concerned about how the turkey is treated, rather than the cooking process or how it tastes. If you’re in control of buying the turkey for an Aquarian, make sure you know the process of how it got to the market, before it gets to your table. November 22, 2018: Everyone has a point of view. You can’t please everyone, but you can agree to disagree.

Pisces
If anyone appreciates a good Thanksgiving dinner, it’s a Piscean. You can expect to hear positive hmm, hmm sounds that let you know all is well. It doesn’t really matter how the turkey gets to the table as long as it does arrive and is extremely tasty! November 22, 2018: Even though there is a lot going on for you right now, it’s a holiday and a time to put aside everything else to be with those you love. Take some chill time.
